Welcome Back Postcard
Mrs. McGowan in second Grade


Dear Parents of students in Room 103,


     I am very happy to be your child's second grade teacher during the 2016-2017 school year.  This is my 32nd year in the Minneapolis Schools. I have been at Hiawatha for 30 years.  

     My husband Jay teaches 5th Grade at Howe.  You may have a son or daughter in his class this year.

     We have two sons.  Our youngest is Jordan.  He's atttending graduate school in Rochester at the Mayo School of Health Sciences. Our son Josh is married to Kelsey. They both live in Fergus Falls, MN.  Josh is a band director and Kelsey is a nurse.

     We enjoyed our summer going to weddings and doing some traveling.  We went to Alaska, North Dakota, and to did some camping along the North Shore. I've walked many new park trails while learning to play Pokemon Go.

     I look forward to a great year with you and your child.


                                                   Kim Berg-McGowan
